The presidential candidate of the Labour Party has called on the Independent National Electoral Commission to extend the voter registration exercise across the country as the deadline for registration of new Permanent Voter Cards draws close.

Obi made the call via his Twitter handle on Thursday stating that voter registration across the country and especially in the South-East had been impeded by bureaucratic bottlenecks.

INEC had earlier extended the deadline for online registration for new PVCs from May 31, 2022, to June 30, 2022. However, the electoral umpire maintained the deadline for all registrations on June 30.
